    App removed files, now phone corrupted!!

    Hi all,

    I have an app that removes various files prior to exiting. See this thread....
    http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...ad.php?t=85303

    But, the filename of one of the files to be removed was mistyped so that it turned into a wildcard - maybe a "*" ?!? I'm not sure exactly. But anyway, my file remover code removed a lot more than was intended - and now the phone is seriously ill. At boot up, I get the following dialog box:

    " Phone start-up failed. Contact the retailer."

    Is there any recovery that I can do, or must I really go back to the retailer ?

    I tried downloading a software upgrade from Nokia, but that does not work.

    BTW, this is a Nokia 6680.

    thanks.

    Rich

    I think the only way is to contact Nokia service center and ask them to re-flash the software, basically if you can not boot-up the phone, then there is propably nothing you could do to it by yourself.

    You can try reformatting the 6680 by powering it off, pressing down the '3', '*' and 'green/talk'. While you keep these three keys pressed down, power on the the phone (and keep pressing the keys down).

    Thanks for the ideas. But no good. I guess I have to go back to Nokia and get the phone re-flashed.
